Remember, remember the 5th of November – it’s Labour-run Maghull

Maghull Town Council fireworks display 2012

 

Remember, remember the 5th of November - it's the date Labour-run Maghull Town Council will be holding its annual fireworks display extravaganza.

The annual display is one of the highlights of the town council's calendar, as thousands flock to Whinneybrook Playing Field - opposite Glenn Park.

Last year, an estimated 5,000 people attended the display.

Maghull Town Council's Labour leader, Cllr Patrick McKinley, said the display is a firm fixture in Maghull's calendar.

Cllr McKinley said: "The Maghull Town Council fireworks display is always a brilliant event. Thousands of people from throughout Maghull come along, join in the fun and enjoy the display. It brings the community of Maghull, young and older, together.

"It makes sure that not only is there somewhere for people to go to enjoy an organised display, but there is somewhere safe for young people to enjoy bonfire night.

"Last year's fireworks display was one of the biggest displays we've ever had in Maghull. It attracted more than 5,000 people who enjoyed an excellent professional display."

MK Fireworks are making a return to Maghull with a 20 minute display. Entry will be just £1.

Refreshments will be available and entertainment will be provided by Maghull High School.

Cllr McKinley added: "Cuts being imposed by the government on Sefton Council have obviously had an impact on funding to the town council.

"So the minimal entry charge will hopefully cover some of the costs of staging this event.

"We are determined not to let the Tory-Lib Dem government pour water on our fireworks display."

The gates open at 5.30pm with the display getting underway at 6.30pm.
